Great way to start New Year

Happy New Year to everyone, and if Tuesday night's basketball action is any indication, then it should be a great way to start 2011 for anyone who likes following high school sports in the area.
Several great matchups will take place on the first big night of the year, with the most notable one being a boys game taking place at Southfield when the host Bluejays take on Clarkston in a HUGE OAA Red battle.
The Wolves have struggled to start the season, losing to Flint Carman-Ainsworth and Troy Athens, but Kosmo has to believe they'll be ready to go on Tuesday. Dan Fife has had two weeks to kick his team's butt in practice and Clarkston is rarely embarrassed, although if any team is capable of a blowout, it's a loaded Southfield squad.
Another big boys game is an OAA White contest between Berkley and Rochester Adams at Adams. The Bears recorded a huge win at Auburn Hills Avondale before Christmas, and have a chance to really stamp themselves as a team to watch with games this week against Adams and unbeaten Ferndale.
Adams suffered a close loss at home to Ferndale before the holiday break, but is a solid team that plays well at home.
There will also be an important girls game that takes place in the Catholic League Central when Farmington Hills Mercy takes on Birmingham Marian at Marian. The Marlins are off to a great start, but Marian is a traditional power for a reason.
- Kosmo read in an online report that former Orchard Lake St. Mary's quarterback Robert Bolden is going to transfer from Penn State, despite starting the first few games as a freshman. The K-Man doesn't fully know what's going on behind the scenes, but he hopes it's not a matter of sour grapes or Bolden thinking things are going to be fully catered to him elsewhere. He's a great kid that comes from a great family, and hopefully if he's deciding to transfer, he does it for the right reasons.
